Watch out Nopa, your food game is about to get even better. Come early June, the second Souvla will land on Divis with its popular Greek-tinged rotisserie wraps and salads, addictive fries, and beloved froyo. It’s hard to believe given the current status of the space (see the construction zone above), but the "shotgun space" — so-called because it is long and narrow — will very soon transform into a space double the size of the original Souvla with the same aesthetics. "There is a cohesive design language between the two, so you’re going to see a lot of the same elements in there with the subway tile, copper tables, a lot of white, and wood beams," owner Charles Bililies told Eater.
The main differences between the two spaces are the larger size, the addition of a backyard patio, and the ability to host private events in that outdoor space. "It will be a two-level back patio with custom wood doors, a custom communal table on the lower level and a dining bar with high top tables on the upper deck," Bililies said. That space will be able to be rented out, probably buffet or family style.
Look out for the new Souvla in very early June, pending city approvals and all that. And if you think this will be SF’s last location, you are sorely mistaken — this thing is going to spread like fancy toast.
